Tenderness 03:58
TENDERNESS Words & Music by P.PASCOE. THIS PICTURE'S BLUE   THE PAINTED SKY REFLECTS MY MOOD   PLEASE REMIND ME WHY IF LOVE IS TRUE WHY’S IT BLIND? OR IS IT ALL THE HURTS   WE CAN'T LEAVE BEHIND? LONELINESS IS ONLY THIS   WHEN YOU’RE THE OWNER OF AN UNCLAIMED KISS REMEMBER TENDERNESS WAITS FOR EVERYONE WE'RE INCLINED TO LOSE OUR WAY  AS WE TRY TO FIND A WAY TO SAY WHATS DEEP INSIDE, THE STRONGEST MEMORIES WILL STAY THEN WE RETURN   WE’VE BEEN THERE BEFORE LOVE’S ROULETTE WHEEL HAS NO FAVOURITES WE TAKE THE CHANCE   WHO KEEPS SCORE? TAKE A SOULFUL DANCE    AGAIN TO FIND US WAITING FOR OUR BIGGEST WISH      TO COME TRUE CATCHING THAT ELUSIVE FISH REMEMBER TENDERNESS WAITS FOR EVERYONE CARRY US AWAY TODAY    AS WE FIND  A WAY TO SAY WHATS DEEP INSIDE, THE STRONGEST MEMORIES WILL STAY AND THE DREAMS WE HOLD  AND THE TRUTHS WE’RE TOLD WILL LEAD TO HAPPINESS  AND THE CREAM WILL RISE TO TOP SWEET SURPRISE IT’S HAPPINESS
